Carlos Corberán has resigned as head coach of Huddersfield Town, a secondary club in the United Kingdom announced Thursday.
The Spaniards led the Yorkshire Club to the Championship Playoffs Final at Wembley in May. Huddersfield missed the chance to play in the elite and lucrative Premier League next season after losing to Nottingham Forest 1-0.
In a club statement, Terrier said Colberan resigned with his longtime assistant Jorge Alarcon after meeting with football business manager Leigh Bromby on Wednesday.
The club’s statement, released Thursday, said:
“The 39-year-old was appointed to that role in July 2020 and led the team to the playoff finals of the Skybet Championship in the final campaign after finishing 20th in his first season.
“But he informed the club on Wednesday night of his decision to leave with his longtime colleague Jorge Alarcon.”
Huddersfield added that Danny Schofield has been appointed as their new head coach.
Colberan became the first head coach in his career when he took over Danny Cowley at Huddersfield after completing a three-year spell as a coach for Leeds under Marcelo Bielsa.
Huddersfield, who was demoted from the Premier League in 2019, struggled in the first season of Colveran and was demoted to the third tier of British football for the second time in a row.
However, their form has improved significantly as Colveran led Terrier to third place in the championship and only the top two guaranteed automatic promotion to the Premier League at the end of the regular season.
Colberan later issued a statement on Twitter, stating that his exit was “a difficult decision, but based on my great love for this club, I thought a lot and decided.”
He explained that in order to work well, he must have “maximum consistency” with the club’s policies, “the most honest thing in life is a friendly condition for the best interests of both parties. To move away from. “
